Sporting vs Barcelona Prediction 27 September 2017

Tournament: Champions League
Location: Jose Alvalade Stadium
Match date: 27.09.2017 at 19:45

On September 27 2017 at 19:45 in Lisbon at the Jose Alvalade Stadium in the second round game of the Champions League group stage the local Sporting will try to break the winning series of the Spanish Barcelona.

Sporting started the current season almost two months ago and they actually did it really confidently. Even though they almost didn’t manage to avoid considering goals, their efficient attack let them win most of the times. Yet, as we know, even the longest winning series end sometimes. On September 23 Sporting played against Moreirense and drew 1:1. That was their first time in the starting seven games played in the national championship.

As for the Spanish Barcelona, they are the best in their national championship now. Even though one of their leaders Neymar left the team and another leader Suarez got injured, they still managed to deal with this situation. The victory against Girona in the latest match on Saturday was the 6th one in the 6 games played since the beginning of the championship and it let them save their 4 points distance to the closest rival.

Sporting and Barcelona have only played two games against each other in their history and both of these games were in the year 2008. In those games Barcelona won 3:1 and 2:5. We must remind you that in the first match of the Champions League group stage Sporting outplayed Olympiacos 2:3 while Barcelona won against Juventus 3:0. Considering the fact that Sporting drew in their two latest games while the winning series of Barcelona is 7 games long already, we think that Sporting have no chances even for a draw.
